IEFRA — Inventory problems

  • Key: IEFRA-31
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Technical Director Emeritus ( Andrew Watson)
  • Summary:

    In the accompanying submission Inventory, mars/17-05-07, "Auxiliary Files:" should be "Ancillary Files". In fact, the "IEF Model in in XMI" should be labelled informative or normative, not ancillary. The inventory itself should be labelled as informative. Here's some guidance on what labels to give to files:

    Normative: A document that specifies how a conforming implementation shall behave (but may contain specifically-labelled non-normative sections).

    Informative: Non-normative material aimed at users of the specification, such as examples or non-normative guidelines.

    Ancillary: Material intended to help OMG Members reviewing the report or creating future revisions of the specification, such as a change-tracked specification showing issue resolutions applied, editable source of models stored in proprietary formats, or programs used to build parts of the specification from machine-readable sources. The specification shall be usable without reference to the ancillary files, which should not be given URLs.
